Human PTX3/Pentraxin 3 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human PTX3/Pentraxin 3 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of Human PTX3 in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma (EDTA) and saliva.
PTX3(Pentraxin 3) is a member of the pentraxin superfamily. This super family characterized by cyclic multimeric structure. The PTX3 gene is mapped to 3q25.32. The predicted 381-amino acid PTX3 protein has homology to the pentraxin protein family. Significant levels of PTX3 were detected in plasma of neutropenic patients with systemic A. PTX3 is effective in preventing CMV infection and reactivation, as well as subsequent Aspergillus infection. PTX3 activates the classical pathway of complementactivation and facilitates pathogen recognition by macrophages and DCs.
